Ok but that doesn't apply to games at all so...

This statement really doesnt relate to the gaming industry or this service as there isnt compression on files that you are running natively, at least not in the sense you are referring to. There may be a case for this argument as far as streaming services, but even then the conversation gets more difficult as a user would have to invest quite a bit in hardware to compete with streaming quality (assuming they have the bandwidth).

And "lots of people" is a generalization, some people will always prefer physical media, but those people represent a fraction of the market and are considerably less than what they were a generation ago. As it stands sales of physical media are horrid compared to years past.

They added Prey yesterday so I can now play that. After Prey and Metro I'm going to cancel. I only paid $1 so far I have absolutly got my money worth. But christ, they need to fix the MS store. Nothing but problems downloading the games and why the hell dont they use conventional file system? Accessing and moving files is impossible with their current system.
Looks like you may have problems outside of the MS store.

I tried to read that but it was making me go cross eyed. Does it look like this to everyone else??

Well I feel left out now. How do I get on the secret code list?


Back to the thread. Forza Horizon 4 multiplayer doesn't work? It's literally the only reason I wanted to try it out, I wanted to relive the old Test Drive Unlimited days where you could cruise around with your friends without being in a race.

That's basically how Forza Horizon 4 MP works. You're always in a session (a world with several other drivers) but unlike in Forza Horizon 3, other drivers can't bother you in game until you join in a MP race or Forzathon event, or form up a posse and drive around wherever you want. Otherwise, other players are like ghost when they're near you...

Sent that from my phone. I have no clue why it messed up the text so bad.

Both my friend and I continuously get disconnected from the "life" sessions. Making it so we cant access pretty much any of the online features. It happens every 15-30min regardless of us being in the same lobby or not. He is in California on fiber to cat 5 right into his box and im in Florida on WiFi. Both our NAT's are open, both of us have all the related ports forwarded. We both reinstalled Teredo (which is required to run a Xbox live service game on PC). Just google "Forza Horizon 4 cant connect" and you will find countless post with pages upon pages of people complaining about the multiplayer, from launch to as recent as this week. The game is broken for online. Its a shame too. It is the most fun I have had in Forza since Forza 4, and that's saying a lot.
